Wolfenstein: The New Order is an old school FPS that takes place during an alternate history where the Nazi's won WWII. The game is set in the 1960s and you play as Captain B.J. Blazkowicz, a US Army Ranger who is on a mission to launch a counter-offensive against the oppressive Nazi army. An army that now includes robots, drug infused super soldiers and armored dogs. Grab your duel automatic shotguns with shrapnel shells and your med packs because the proverbial is about to hit the fan.
Notes: This guide was written using the default controller settings for he PS4 version. All controls are the same for the PS3 version except the / and the / buttons are swapped.
Some people have experienced an issue where if the game has crashed or closed in error, they lost their Chapter progress. The good news here is Wolfenstein uses two save files. One for your Profile which saves perks, collectibles and level progression and the other for Chapter progress. Don't fret too much if your Chapter progress has been corrupted, you will only have to restart the Chapter via Chapter select. More info can be found here: LINK
Step 1: Play through the campaign on ÜBER difficulty
Play through the campaign on ÜBER difficulty. ÜBER difficulty is The New Order's highest difficulty level but it is not nearly as difficult as the name suggest. Even on this difficulty level your character can still take a quite a bit of damage and most enemies are only slightly stronger. As long as you play smart, move cautiously, use cover with the advantage of the 'lean' mechanic and use stealth when available you should not have much trouble. See Über hero for more information and tips.
During this playthrough you should make sure you complete as many challenges as you can to unlock the various perks and their corresponding trophies. Restarting checkpoints and deaths do not reset progress so grinding out a particular perk/trophy at an advantageous checkpoint is recommended. In addition to the trophies you receive, the perks you unlock make the game easier and more enjoyable. You may not be able to unlock all of the perks during this initial run but there is Chapter select so after finishing the game you can return to previous missions to grind out any missing perks.
In addition to unlocking perks you will also need to collect various collectibles. Timelines do not affect collectibles so you can choose to save whomever you like. Some collectibles are located on your map but others will only be shown to you once you stealth kill certain commanders or complete side quests. Because of the high number of collectibles it is recommended that you follow PowerPyx’s comprehensive collectibles guide or Harry94's excellent collectibles guide with text and pictures. As with the perks, none of the collectibles are missable due to Chapter select.
During this Step you will unlock the following trophies:
Fergus saved or Wyatt saved
Vive la resistance!
Power to the laser
Hidden in the deep
Unless you are saving the collectibles and perks trophies for Chapter Select clean-up, you will unlock the 7 collectible and 32 perk unlock trophies as well.
Exploit Notice: Alternatively, you can save yourself some time by using an exploit which only requires you to beat the final Chapter on ÜBER difficulty to unlock the two difficulty trophies. To use this exploit just finish the game on Can I Play, Daddy? (very easy) difficulty then from the main menu use Chapter Select to load up the final Chapter, now replay the final Chapter again on ÜBER difficulty to unlock the Super Hero and Über hero trophies. More details about this exploit can be found under the Über hero trophy description.
Step 2: Clean-up via Chapter Select
First things first you will need to load up the first Chapter via Chapter select and make your way to the decision but this time choose to save the opposite person you chose to save during your playthrough. This will unlock Fergus saved or Wyatt saved.
Unless you completed a perfect run, you will need this Step to clean-up any remaining trophies you may have missed during your playthrough. Use Chapter Select to clean-up these trophies but do not start a new game or new game+. Collectibles are listed by Chapter and each one has a unique name so they are easily identified in the collectibles menu. Some perks can only be unlocked during certain circumstances while others can be unlocked practically anywhere, see the corresponding perk trophy descriptions for more information.
Important note about perks:
Thankfully this game saves everything you do as soon as you do it. This means you can farm perks whenever you see fit. For instance if a perk requires you to kill a certain enemy five times with a certain weapon type, you can kill that enemy with that weapon type then restart the checkpoint repeatedly to unlock that trophy/perk. If you find yourself in an advantageous situation where you feel you can fully unlock a perk, by all means take advantage of it. You can check your perks progress at anytime by pressing the on the PS4 and on the PS3.
After completing both of these Steps, congratulate yourself on your new shiny .
